Out of all the people in the world who use the internet, I’d say 95% of them probably have at least thought about how they could make money online.
Internet Marketing can be a fulfilling journey as you come to understand the mechanics and the science behind getting people to buy stuff online.
It can also feel like an extremely daunting task. No matter how bad you want to learn how to market online, be-impact there’s always someone out there willing to teach you their broken model for making money online.
There’s an old saying that applies to all forms of sales:
“There’s more money selling picks and shovels than there is digging for gold!”
I believe that’s a fairly accurate statement, but what does it really imply?
There’s more money in selling information
Many times online, you will find people have products for sale that they claim will teach you how to do XYZ on the internet.
The problem is, they are not truly teaching you everything you need to know. In so doing, they leave the door wide open for you to purchase “Volume 2” of their coaching program when it launches in 90 days.
Then you, (the person looking to learn how to market) are left high and dry, wondering why you just spent $299 on a course that taught you the basics of internet marketing but never actually covered any tangible how-to information that you could take action on!
Learn Internet Marketing From Your Mistakes
I know a lot of you probably don’t want to hear this, but if you plan on becoming a successful internet marketing one of the quickest ways for you to learn is to just get out there and start “doing”.
It’s inevitable that when you embark on something new that you’ll undoubtedly make mistakes here and there. However, if you are tracking your results and keeping an eye on what you are doing the data that you come back with will be invaluable.
Don’t spend 3 months “studying” Internet Marketing
Another mistake that newbies make, (and even I made) is not taking action. Everybody wants to read the internet marketing books and get on webinars, and Google Hangouts, but nobody wants to take action.
As aforementioned, the sooner that you make the decision to get out there and start taking action, the sooner you will see results.
It’s not necessary to wait until you know every little thing about a subject before you take action. You just learn the foundation of what you need to do, and then you go to worm.
Why Internet Marketing Is So Much Fun
Internet Marketing can really be tons of fun once you crack the code so to speak on how to be successful.
There are literally billions of people who use the internet each and every day and by learning how to market on the internet you open up the world of possibilities 100 fold.
Why would you only sell products/services in your own country when you have the ability to take those same products/services and sell them to the entire world?
Another beautiful thing about being an internet marketer is that there is no cap on the income that you can earn.
Many successful internet marketers started off knowing nothing at all and in 12-18 months were earning $20,000 per month or more.
It really has a lot to do with what it is that you have to offer and how serious you are about learning how to market and doing only what works.
Being your own boss is also extremely exciting. Even though some days you may only make $30-$40 dollars online. It’s so much more fulfilling than the $80 you would have earned on your job that day.
The reason why it’s so fulfilling is because usually it takes a lot less time to earn, and also, the feeling of creating something from nothing is just inexplicable until you’ve actually had the opportunity to do so for yourself.
